Jaguars' Offensive Line Dealing With Injuries

The Jaguars lost right tackle Cameron Bradfield and guard Eben Britton to lower-leg injuries midway through Sunday's game against Minnesota, a major reason for Jacksonville's second-half offensive struggles. Both Bradfield and Britton and guard Uche Nwaneri were in protective walking boots after the loss.

Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey did not have any definitive answers on the status of his three banged-up linemen at Monday's press conference.

"Still waiting on two MRIs with Cameron Bradfield and ... Eben Britton," Mularkey said. "I don't think it's serious, but it's probably questionable right now whether [Britton is] going to play. I don't think it's a long-term thing which is good. He tried to play yesterday. I appreciate his effort to go back in there. We were scrambling."

The Jaguars signed offensive tackle Herb Taylor on Monday as insurance in case Bradfield, Britton, or Nwaneri are unable to play Sunday. Jacksonville faces the tough task of stopping a suffocating Houston Texans pass rush that features J.J. Watt, Antonio Smith and Brian Cushing.
